Serious Stages provided stages and site structures for BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend, Coventry, War Memorial Park, 27th-29th May 2022. This was the first big summer gig of the year following the pandemic, and it was great to work alongside the BBC Events team, Festival Republic and Enteetainment, who produced the show.

Our Space Roof Main Stage was adapted to accommodate a fast-moving show with quick artist changeovers. It featured extended goalposts carrying square LED screens, creating a 50m frontage to give spectacular views for the live fans and the broadcast teams.

Our team also installed the Future Sounds and BBC Introducing stages, along with front-of-house towers/platforms, broadcast camera platforms, assisted viewing platforms, and speaker delay towers
